Central IT's SharePoint team is releasing a training presentation within the next week about Sites in Office 365. Sites in Office 365 is replacing the 2007 platform of SharePoint within the next year or so. Microsoft is upgrading to the new platform and is no longer supporting the older version of SharePoint. The training videos intend to educate our organization about all the great things you can do with your new site in Office 365!
Exciting news! Beginning with the Winterim term of 2015, instructors will no longer have to request D2L course sites! Instead, all the sites will be automatically created. Why is this important you ask?
Not only will all instructors have the opportunity to access features of D2L such as posting important notices, gradebook, and different supplements for course work, but instructors who have previously never taken advantage of D2L will have the opportunity to do so, without having to request a course be created.
We are extremely pleased to be welcoming quite a few new faces to the CITS staff!
